Where should you go in March?

Thanks to the seasonal dry and monsoon seasons, March is the perfect time to go on holiday somewhere tropical. In Southeast Asia, for instance, March falls outside the wet season, so it’s a great month to unwind on the islands of Thailand or explore the urban jungle of Kuala Lumpur. India also hits the sweet spot between humid heat and monsoon season, so you can experience chaotic Delhi and tranquil Goa. Meanwhile, the cooler temperatures in the Middle East – compared to the region’s scorching summer – make March a good time for sightseeing trips. Marvel at the historical wonders Petra in Jordan, and see the beautiful architecture of Oman. Or the corners of Africa offer more adventurous holidays – from the plains of South Africa, to the markets of Marrakech, to the tropical beaches of Mauritius.

Hot Destinations in March

Southeast Asia

Over the last decade, Southeast Asia has seen an unprecedented boom in tourism. And, with its tropical climate and rich cultural heritage, it’s not hard to see why. Thailand is a brilliant holiday spot all year round, but March is a particularly good time to visit. In the south, the popular areas of Phuket and Krabi enjoy daily temperatures around 34 degrees. Meanwhile, Koh Samui – Thailand’s second-biggest island – is slightly cooler, so you can make the most of the national marine park, hidden beaches and coral reefs. Alternatively, you could go island-hopping across Malaysia, where you tranquil temples rub shoulders with luxury resorts. While you’re there, why not spend a couple of days in Kuala Lumpur? As city breaks go, Malaysia’s futuristic capital is hard to beat – expect impressive architecture, mouth-watering restaurants and toasty temperatures.

The Middle East

Travelling to the Middle East in March gives you the opportunity to visit a wealth of attractions, before the stifling summer heat takes hold. In Jordan, the ‘lost city’ of Petra is one of the world’s most iconic historical sites – and, with average temperatures of 20 degrees, March is a great time to go. For a hotter holiday destination, try Oman. The capital city, Muscat, is a vibrant patchwork of mosques and bazaars, with plenty to see and do in the 29-degree heat. If you’d like combine beach time with a spot of shopping, Dubai should be top of your list. Famous for its huge shopping malls, giant skyscrapers and golden sands, the City of Superlatives is a great choice for a hot holiday in March. Alternatively, book a trip to Abu Dhabi to experience record-breaking rollercoasters and desert safaris.


Vast, diverse Africa has something for everyone. Adventurers, luxury-seekers and wildlife-lovers alike can all find a holiday destination they’ll love. If you’ve always dreamed of going on safari, look no further than South Africa. In March, the mercury hovers around the 25-degree mark – the perfect temperature for seeing the ‘big five’, visiting incredible vineyards and exploring lively Cape Town. Plus, the Cape Town Carnival and Cape Town Jazz Festival are both in town. At the other end of the continent, comparatively cool Marrakech is around 23 degrees Celsius. So you can meander through the medley of souks, gardens and restaurants in comfort. Or, if you’re eager to get some winter sun, book a holiday to Mauritius. With coral reefs, white beaches and average March temperatures of 30 degrees, this tropical island offers the ultimate escape.


If you’re looking for something a little different from your usual beach break, consider India. Going in March means you’ll avoid both the monsoon season and the oppressive summer heat. Thanks to 30-degree days in Delhi, you can uncover the capital city’s treasures without getting too hot. New Delhi is an ever-changing, bustling hub, while Old Delhi is home to cultural landmarks and ancient architecture. Plus, if you travel in March, you can experience Holi – the festival of colours. Northern India is also home to the world-famous Taj Mahal and the blush-coloured city of Jaipur. But, if you want that all-important beach time, you’ll need to head south to Goa. This region has just as much history as the cities – thanks to its UNESCO World Heritage Sites – but comes with the added bonus of golden sands and 32-degree sunshine.
